The second name begins with a Y,I only know one glass maker(probably many more) that would be Ysart but this is wild speculation,Keith.

I don't recognise the siganture but I can say with 100% certainty that it is not by any of the Ysart men (Salvador, Paul, Vincent, Augustine).

Hi there -

silly, silly (silly) guess here -- but could the first word be " Maestro " Something.  Aren't glass makers know as that, and could the last word be his name.

~~ This is OF COURSE, just a guess here.......maybe I am just seeing things here..  8)
